ARE YOU READY FOR A MEDICARE AUDIT? TMA CAN HELP
Medicare will launch its Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) program in March, and any physician who bills Medicare is fair game for an audit. RACs will mine Part B claims data to find underpayments and overpayments, looking for physicians whose Medicare billings are higher or lower than those of their peers. To help you prevent an audit – and prepare for one if it happens – TMA is starting a new seminar series this month. The half-day class will address common billing and coding errors, frequently asked questions on Medicare payment policies, and how to appeal claim denials. You can register for the seminars online and earn up to 5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.
